Original Stories: Panel Discussion

  • 90 mins

As a complement to our Performed Readings, we are bringing together leading contemporary writers and producers to discuss approaches to adapting work for the screen.

Our programme features notable adaptations, from Elegy and The Kreutzer Sonata to The Connection and Jules et Jim so is this a surefire route to a hit? Is it easier than creating a brand new story? And is the original writer the best person to adapt a work?

The panelists for this event  are:

Andrea Gibb (chair) - director
Alasdair Gray - writer
David Greig - playwright
Iain Brown - producer
David Smith - producer BROCKEN SPECTRE

Also In This Series:

In collaboration with the Traverse Theatre, we present three film scripts currently in development. Alasdair Gray has adapted his own much loved novel Poor Things; David Greig presents a new original screenplay (co financed by the UK Film Council and Film 4), The Darkest Hour; and Nicola McCartney has adapted her own stage play Heritage (with production company Brocken Spectre) for the big screen. These three very different scripts demonstrate the talent and diversity of contemporary Scottish screenwriting – and our readings offer an opportunity to hear these films of the future being read by professional actors.
